Red Moon Rising

Like many of Obama’s decisions, the canceling of NASA’s manned moon missions was shortsighted and blind to consequences. Giving up U.S. assumed squatter’s rights put the moon up for grabs and it didn’t take long for China to make a move. There is a red moon rising and the entire world is in its dangerous shadow.

China just became the first country in almost 40 years to soft-land a probe on the moon and plans to send its first astronaut to the moon by 2030, but what comes after that is a real concern. According to several reports, China has long-term plans for transforming the moon into a missile base.

The Want China Times claims that Chinese experts are discussing the possibility of establishing a missile base and/or a weapons testing site on the moon by the year 2050. Those who sneer at this idea cite international agreements banning weapons from space as a reason for skepticism, but they forget that similar international agreements against a nuclear Iran are proving to be useless.

Arming the moon dovetails with China’s recent sword-rattling such as sending warships to the coast of Syria, threatening nuclear strikes over US involvement with Taiwan, and imposing an air defense zone over disputed islands. This red moon is rising because of a perceived weakness in Obama and his foreign policies, a weakness becoming more and more evident, and dangerous, around the world.

Obama gave Iraq to Al Qaeda; he gave Russia credibility and influence in the Middle East; he gave Iran time to develop a nuclear weapon; he gave taxpayer money to “green” companies that failed miserably; he gave enormous debt to our grandchildren; he gave pink slips to millions of workers; he gave us a health insurance law that doesn’t work; and he gave the moon to China.

Please, Mr. President, stop giving.

    Stopping NASA operations also destroys thousands of skilled jobs, like machinists, sheet metal workers, and engineers. Once these skills gone, they will be hard to replace.

    Obama is just moving his plan to ‘fundamentally change” America ahead.
